    1. I am finally warming to the holiday season. Cookie exchanges, parties and Tourtière will do that to me.
    2. Finally upgraded to iO6 now that Google has a map app available
    3. Pizza Day!
    4. Got hit with a slapshot right below my shin pad last night. Hurts like a mother, going to be a nice bruise.
    5. Is it weird to be totally non-religious and yet be stoked to be a godparent? Guess I see it more as being a guardian.
    6. It's really hard to make ten totally random, unconnected observations. Even Maister couldn't do it.
    7. I love my Mini but holy crap does even simple maintenance cost $$$ at the dealer.
    8. I wish there was a bigger movement to celebrate Winter Solstice instead of Christmas. I'd totally be down with that.
    9. A croissant a day keeps the what away?
    10. Scotch tasting on the horizon...oh yeah.

    1. I've been quite sleepy this week.
    2. Both of my daughters got hit with a stomach bug within the past week, but both bounced back within a day.
    3. Taking the girls to see Santa at school tomorrow night.
    4. Xmas shopping still not done, but getting close.
    5. Shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches for dinner tonight.
    6. I often wonder where my family went wrong and why we are not close with one another.
    7. No exterior Xmas lights up, but there's a wreath on the front door, so that's good enough, right?
    8. I don't mind listening to your sob story, but I only need to hear it once, not 4 times.
    9. When leaving a VM, slow the eff down when you're speaking.
    10. Santa may come early at our house this year so we can leave early and head south.

    7. Ten more shopping days until Christmas, and I'm still debating what to get my significant other.
    8. I didn't watch any of the superstorm Sandy musical extravaganza fundraiser on TV last night.
    9. It doesn't look like December outside, but it feels like it (brrrrr).
    10. Another disadvantage of working from home is that no one leaves home-baked cookies on your desk.

    1) Home-style chicken noodle soup for lunch today with a healthy dose of tabasco, and crackers. Yum!
    2) I have enough cash to get me through today.

    1. I enjoy watching Wallace & Gromit. Puts all other stop motion animation to shame (take that Davy & Goliath!)
    2. I enjoy watching Pinky & the Brain even though it's traditional cartoon animation
    3. I'm thinking about posting a 'Toon of the day' thread so some of us oldsters can turn the young'uns to all the great (violent) Warner Bros toon we watched as kids
    4. I see that Spiro Agnew died in 1996. I don't recall hearing about his passing at that time
    5. Damn, I love salted peanuts (either cocktail or in the shell)
    6. Damn, I love beer. I could eat salt peanuts and drink beer all day
    7. Tomorrow is either my first day of vacation or my last day on earth. Either way, I think I'll devote much of it to eating peanuts and drinking beer!
    8. My favorite office supply - binder clips (way better than paper clips)
    9. I just love dashing Junior's hopes concerning all the presents he's begging us for....only to turn around and have Santa bring them instead
    10. I like a number of tunes Heart did, but my favorite is still 'Barracuda'

    1. I need new wipers for the car - the windshield is just a big blur in the rain
    2. I'm avoiding all the people with the flu (or whatever) including my family
    3. The best things about my office is the squirrels that hang out in front of my window
    4. The second best thing is watching the parking enforcement at work and angry people (it's only a $5 ticket)
    5. Why is my county the most backwards county ever? (sounds like a good thread)
    6. I've been eating soup for lunch all week to cut off that holiday weight
    7. I'm running out of things to say about myself
    8. I hope I get time to watch my Office Space DVD this weekend (it was a Christmas present)
    9. I need chocolate
    10. The person who worked here before me didn't know what they were doing (and I know the next person will say the same about me)
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    1) Writing a "hurry up" CMAQ application. Learned about it at lunch, it's due Monday. Um, we're called planners, not miracle workers.
    2) Gray, wet, and dreary outside. Supposed to get quite warm this weekend, but lots of rain, too.Up to 4" in places. The long term forecast is for the weather to turn seriously cold toward the end of the month. Maybe we'll get snow then.
    3) My son did pretty well on his first go-round on the PSAT. He can do better though. He knows it, too. It'll be interesting to see how he does on the next one. Geez, how am I going to pay for college? Yikes!
    4) It was a fun closing day for the RTDNOTO7 thread. It still makes me sad thinking 'bout BUN, though. I think Hink had 3x as many posts there on the 31st as I had all year!
    5) I was squeamish about adjusting my daughter's MARA but it's actually real easy.
    6) The County Recorder advised me there's a big screw-up on a recorded plat. That's what happens when you record a plat without the Planning Director's signature or stamp. State law actually says the plat is void.
    7) You don't care about "6)", do you?
    8) I'd be jealous, but you could never get me to ride in a submarine. No way, no how I want go deep underwater. Uh, uh.
    9) I need saltines but I don't want to go to the grocery for that and that only. I also don't want to go to Walgreens since the last time I bought some there, they appeared to have been baked during WWII. Stale, much?
    10) I'm jonesing for something sweet.

    8. I haven't had a flu shot yet.

    10. I'm falling aslee
